Chinese people live out my nightmares

Specifically the one where I'm out in public, and I realise I'm wearing nothing but my pyjamas.

SHANGHAI (AFP) - Community leaders in Shanghai are trying to break up the love affair of some city residents with walking outside in their pyjamas, state media reported Friday.

The Rixin neighbourhood committee in the city's northeast has begun a campaign to discourage residents' longstanding habit of wearing pyjamas out of their bedrooms and on the streets, the state-run Youth Daily reported.

"We're telling people not to wear pyjamas in the street because it looks very uncivilised," community official Guo Xilin was quoted as saying.

The Shanghainese habit of wearing pyjamas in public emerged alongside China's economic reforms over the past 30 years as it became a sign of prosperity, because it meant people did not sleep in tattered old clothes.

I dont get you China! I really dont! I'd be absolutely mortified! Though this article does shed a lot of light on the tons of Mainland Chinese students here in Melbourne. Frequently I'll wander into the supermarket only to be confronted by the sight of a whole gaggle of them wandering around in PJs.

(Okay, so these people actually have pajamas, whereas I just sleep in underwear.)

    Hey people do that in my city.
    They think because they're just hanging around their estate, or going to the shops (to buy some cider???) it's fine to just wear their pyjamas.

    Most days I just go to sleep in whatever I was wearing that day anyway.

    When I was young I justified it so that I could leap out of the building if it ever caught fire and not be standing there in my underwear.

    Now I'm pretty sure its just because I have body image issues.

    The most important thing is that the girl must still have a full face of makeup on and lots of jewellery.
    And Ugg boots.
    Fake Ugg boots from the market.

    Silly China, stop hating on people being cool.

    Walking around in your PJs makes you awesome, cause you just don't give a fuck.

    You're like that poster who puts way too much thought into the things you're saying, and edits the fuck out of everything.

    Wait, that's me. What were we talking about?

    I sell a lot of slippers at the shoe store I work at.

    Most of those are Ugg slippers.

    Every day I have to make sure I ask the buyer if the teenage girl receiving the slippers as a Christmas present is planning to wear them to school so I can give them ones with thicker soles.

    I mean I've worn my moccasins around a college campus but even that, I felt, was pushing it.

    Plus these slippers are eighty fucking dollars. That's more than I spend on sneakers.
